Dear members,

I am trying to connect a VX7000 to an MX8000 with dolby digital module. No external speakers connected. While I do get a picture and the VX7000 seems to be working fine, there is absolutely no sound. Any idea what this lack of sound can be due to?

Thanks!

Greetings,

Kai

Is the SCART cable fully wired and properly inserted at both ends?

Hi there,

can't say for sure. Have tried two different Scart cables to no avail. Maybe they were both not fully wired? Are you sure that you need a fully wired one? How can you tell whether it is that or not?

Greetings,

Kai

There is cinch audio out on the VX7000. Can this be used to get sound to the MX8000? Sorry to be so lost here. I have had a similar issue with my DVD2 when connected to the old Avant. Scart didn't transport any sound and separate connection via jack had to be made. That did the trick then. But since the audio out of the VX7000 is analogue and the audio in on the MX8000 is digital, I would probably need a converter, wouldn't I?

I used my VX7000 with my LX6000 and BV5. Both only needed a fully wired SCART cable. When using a fully wired cable, pressing PLAY on the VX7000 should cause the TV to turn on, select the right input and show the program (with sound).

I don’t know if your MX8000 has a separate selector for sound.

If you have a simple multi-meter with 2 probes you can check pins at opposite ends of the cable for continuity.

Yes, you should be able to connect video composite (yellow RCA plug), and left/right analog audio (white/red RCA plugs) between the two devices.

I am pretty sure that it is due to the DD module. A converter will be needed.

 

Thanks! Kai

Kai, are you able to select “SPDIF = OFF” on the MX8000 input to which the VX is connected? I think my BV5 had that option.

When using VX7000 and a MX 8000, a fully wired scart cable is needed, and connection to V.tape scart socket.if the MX 8000 has been fitted with Dolby Digital module 32 in the V.tape connection menu SPDIF socket A or B to be set to Off. No need for a converter.

Hi there,

makes a lot of sense. That is exactly what I did except for the SPDIF setting. I can't seem to find it. Whre is it supposed to be? I have looked everywhere and no entry where to disable SPDIF.

Thanks!
